Jeremy Clarkson says Greta Thunberg needs a smacked bottom after COP26 summit

Jeremy Clarkson voiced his opinions on Greta Thunberg ’s appearance at the global Glasgow climate summit after she protested outside the venue.

The ex-Top Gear presenter said that 18 year old climate activist Thunberg is as ‘annoying bucket of ego’ after she spoke at the summit, giving advice on how to fix the current climate crisis.

Despite agreeing with Greta’s view that COP26 was pointless as the climate crisis isn’t new, he wrote in his latest The Sunday Times column: “I simply don’t get the Thunberg phenomenon.”

"She has no knowledge of how the world works, no manners and no letters after her name because instead of going to school, she's been busy sailing round the world so she can be mardy and abusive to grown-ups.

The 61 year old continued his rant: "What she needs is a smacked bottom."

"Here's a tip, Greta: lecturing me on what needs to be done is pointless. It'd be like standing in my bedroom every morning ordering me to wear clothes. I know already.

"What you should be doing instead is cycling to countries where people are perhaps less well aware of what should be done. China for example.

Jeremy Clarkson, host of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? since 2018, wrote: "That I'd like to see. Greta standing outside Zhongnanhai with her parka and her Glastonbury backpack and her microphone, lecturing the leaders about their policies on coal and trees and so on."

Greta protested in Festival Park chanting “You can shove your climate crisis up your a**e!”

"Change is not going to come from inside there – that is not leadership, this is leadership. We say no more blah blah blah, no more exploitation of people and nature and the planet.

"No more exploitation. No more blah blah blah. No more whatever the f**k they are doing inside there."

The event runs from Sunday October 31 to Friday November 12 to bring people together to accelerate action towards the goals of the Paris Agreement and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change.

World leaders and climate experts from around the world flew to Scotland whilst Greta held protests outside COP26.
